Totally Bound



When wealthy brewery owner Austin Fitzgerald meets sexy saleswoman Evelyn Benedict, angry sparks fly.
They seem destined to clash, until a hot hookup in a cold beer cooler changes everything.
For Austin,
it’s a life-altering moment that sets him on a path away from his birthright, while Evelyn must face her fears about
committing to a man considered the playboy of the micro-brewing world.
The power of preconceived notions nearly tears them apart—until they meet up with brew
master Ross, who opens their eyes to a deeper, even more erotic connection.
But three strong personalities don’t always make for the best emotional mix and when a
simple misunderstanding causes chaos, it’s up to Ross to somehow repair the
tattered shreds of their relationship.


Evelyn Benedict is one of the top saleswomen for Tri-City Distribution and is asked to give Austin Fitzgerald, a wealthy brewery owner, a tour of the distribution stores that she manages. The two have instant chemistry, but Evelyn fights the attraction which often becomes very amusing!  As they begin to date and get to know each other, Austin tells Evelyn stories about Ross, his friend and roommate at the Brewing Institute.  As Evelyn and Austin continue their relationship, Evelyn begins to imagine what sex would be like with Austin and Ross. Finally, they both realize that Ross has become a factor in their relationship that they feel needs to explored. Unexpectedly, Evelyn and Austin run into him at the American Beer Festival in Denver, Co.  What will happen when Ross meets Evelyn? Will Austin approve?

Tapped is the first book in the Brewing Passion Series by Liz Crowe and the first book that I have read from the author. This story is pretty steamy and contains both MF and MFM scenes. It has many twists and turns and my emotions were all over the place.  I was frustrated at times with Evelyn as I wished she was not as dramatic as she was.  I felt like their relationship was all over the place due to her immaturity. Although, when I learned about Evelyn’s childhood, I soon understood why she acted the way she did.


Amazon best-selling author, mom of three, Realtor, beer blogger, brewery marketing expert, and soccer fan, Liz Crowe is a Kentucky native and graduate of the
University of Louisville currently living in Ann Arbor. She has decades of experience in sales and fund raising, plus an eight-year stint as a three-continent, ex-pat trailing spouse.
Her early forays into the publishing world led to a groundbreaking fiction subgenre, “Romance: Worth the Risk,” which has gained thousands of fans and followers
interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”).
With stories set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch, in successful real estate offices and at times in exotic locales like Istanbul,
Turkey, her books are unique and told with a fresh voice. The Liz Crowe backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and
complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished.
Don’t ever ask her for anything “like a Budweiser” or risk bodily injury.
